What is special about our Baby pumpkin?
Pumpkin plants grow huge and take up a lot of space. That is why they are usually not suitable for growing in a vegetable garden container.
This Baby Pumpkin produces fairly small fruits. That is why you can guide the plant up through a climbing frame and it will take up much less space.
Sow and grow baby pumpkin
Pumpkins cannot withstand the cold and should therefore be sown indoors at the end of April/beginning of May.
First pre-germinate the seeds and then put them in a pot with half MM mix and pre-sowing vermiculite. Grow the plant indoors and place it outside in a container near a climbing frame at the end of May.
Pumpkins need a lot of nutrition. Therefore, work some extra MM nutrition into the section before planting and give some more in July.
Please note: this plant also has enormous tendrils and takes up a large part of the climbing frame. Therefore, place it next to a box with snow peas or pole beans, both make great neighbors.
